Thoughts Of A Man About To Leave A Bridge

When all seems lost

As I view the world through the prism of my mind
I see what life's made of, and I wish I were blind
Nobody is happy, and those that say they are
Have a mind that's torn, twisted, with a social scar

The beat goes on ... the war goes on ... But can life go on?
The world is a chess board and I am but a pawn
Could this hourglass, known as time, run out of sand?
How much sand is left, enough to fill up my hand?

Or does everything end on the day that I die?
And isn't death better than living out this lie?
Now I stand upon this bridge, which way shall I leave?
If I decide to jump ... will anybody grieve ... ?

I heard a sound! "Hello" was the word that was said,
And suddenly all of these loose thoughts left my head
At last I have the answer! "LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED"
For love triumphs over ambition, hatred, and greed
